Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and have a specific question for any/all current UPS Drivers. I would like a career with UPS as a driver. I say driver because it doesn't matter to me whether it is driving a package car or Tractor Trailer. I do have my CDL. I have explored several employment opportunities in my area however they all seem to be part-time or full time temp. positions. My brother-in-law and many of my friends work for UPS so I am very aware of how the system works. My brother-in-law worked part time for 9 years before he was able to get on as a full time package driver. That is the average in my area. My problem is that I am 42 and I don't have 9 years to wait. I have found some full time jobs listed that are not in my area and would require that I relocate. As you can imagine this is a big step to up root and move. I was wondering if any of you could offer me any insight before I take that plunge. There is no guarantee I would be hired for any of these positions if I apply but I want to be sure in case I would get that call. Can any of you offer insight into this? I am not looking for criticism of UPS. I am aware that the job as with any job has both good and bad. But in this economy it is one of the best careers around right now for drivers. I worked as a Teamster for another company as well so I am familiar with the Union aspect, good and bad. I am simply looking for any advice/insight from current UPS drivers. Am I an idiot for even considering chasing a career with UPS? Haha. I hate to phrase it that way but...I want to consider all aspects of this life-changing decision before I do it. I appreciate any serious input you may have. Thank you.
